Song Lyric Sunday – Nobody’s Perfect by Jessie J

I’ve been sitting at my computer combing through my library for hours now.  I’m having a hell of a time, but it’s been super difficult to find a song to fit the theme.  I suppose I knew it would be a challenge, but it’s been fun all the same.

When I finally landed on this one, I was super excited because it fits perfectly, I just hope it isn’t too obvious.

Facing your demons and realizing when you screw up is hard.  I think this song perfectly emotes that feeling and the lyrics are genius.  I also believe that Jessie J is a master and her voice is amazing.

I hope you enjoy!

Nobody’s Perfect by Jessie J

Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

When I’m nervous I have this thing, yeah, I talk too much
Sometimes I just can’t shut the hell up
It’s like I need to tell someone, anyone who’ll listen
And that’s where I seem to fuck up

Yeah, I forget about the consequences
For a minute there I lose my senses
And in the heat of the moment my mouth starts going
The words start flowing, oh

But I never meant to hurt you
I know it’s time that I learnt to
Treat the people I love like I wanna be loved
This is a lesson learnt

I hate that I let you down
And I feel so bad about it
I guess karma comes back around
‘Cause now I’m the one that’s hurting, yeah
And I hate that I made you think
That the trust we have is broken
Don’t tell me you can’t forgive me
‘Cause nobody’s perfect
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, nobody’s perfect, no

If I could turn back the hands of time
I swear I never would have crossed that line
I should have kept it between us
But, no, I went and told the whole world how I’m feeling, oh

So I sit and I realize
With these tears falling from my eyes
I gotta change if I wanna keep you forever
I promise that I’m gonna try

But I never meant to hurt you
I know it’s time that I learnt to
Treat the people I love like I wanna be loved
This is a lesson learnt

I hate that I let you down
And I feel so bad about it
I guess karma comes back around
‘Cause now I’m the one that’s hurting, yeah
And I hate that I made you think
That the trust we have is broken
So don’t tell me you can’t forgive me
‘Cause nobody’s perfect
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, nobody’s perfect

I’m not a saint, no, not at all, but what I did, it wasn’t cool
But I swear that I’ll never do that again to you, oh
I’m not a saint, no, not at all, but what I did, it wasn’t cool
But I swear that I’ll never do that again to you, yeah

I hate that I let you down
And I feel so bad about it
I guess karma comes back around
‘Cause now I’m the one that’s hurting, yeah
And I hate that I made you think
That the trust we have is broken
So don’t tell me you can’t forgive me
‘Cause nobody’s perfect, no

I hate that I let you down
And I feel so bad about it
I guess karma comes back around
‘Cause now I’m the one that’s hurting, yeah
And I hate that I made you think
That the trust we have is broken
Don’t tell me you can’t forgive me
‘Cause nobody’s perfect, yeah, yeah, whoa

Don’t tell me, don’t tell
Don’t tell me you can’t forgive me
No, no, no, no
‘Cause nobody’s perfect, no
